Hungarian Goulash Soup

Updated: May 20, 2021

Goulash soup is a hearty Hungarian soup similar to American beef stew that is packed with tomatoes and has a lot of paprika. It is one of the dishes Hungarian is famous for and is eaten primarily in Central Europe. When I was in college I visited Hungary for a few days and goulash was one of my favorite dishes that I ate there and the most memorable. This dish is not to be confused with American Goulash which is pretty much chili mac. This is a hearty, healthy, and easy way to make it at home for you and your family.
